The International Arbitration Commission, Healthcare and Life Sciences Commission and Public Procurement Interest Group invite you to the vibrant city of Berlin for a AIJA double seminar:

Annual Arbitration conference: Arbitration in Times of Change – New Lands and Frontiers in Arbitration?

Public Procurement Law and Healthcare and Life Sciences seminar: Healthcare Sector in Transition – Is Public Procurement an Ally or an Enemy?

The International Arbitration Commission will focus on the opportunities and challenges that characterise our time and which impact the landscape of arbitration. For example: Economic sanctions are impacting arbitral proceedings, so how should they be dealt with? Tackling climate change is one of the major tasks of our time, so what role can arbitration play in this context? Also, is arbitration a true option for start-ups? How to deal with the unexpected: force majeure and hardship – has arbitration proven to be up to the challenges? And the always present issue of efficiency – could preliminary assessments and similar tools be a viable way to prevent lengthy and costly proceedings?

The Healthcare and Life Sciences Commission and the Public Procurement Interest Group joined forces to discuss the new trends in the fast moving healthcare sector, e.g. its digitalization or the developments on cannabis market, and the legal challenges these novelties are causing. As a big part of the healthcare markets used to be public, public procurement regulations apply on top of any sectorial changes. Is it an improvement in competition and the best way to spend public money, or just a burden for both the public buyer and private suppliers?

A vivid discussion, new ideas and presentations from the client’s perspective are guaranteed.

On Saturday, the three commissions will meet to make the picture even more complete and to discuss the successful dispute resolution strategies on the healthcare market.

Procuring healthcare-products and -services is not like walking into a store and just grabbing what you like. Rather, most products and services are subject to a harsh competition between different providers. Their fight for bigger market shares is settled before different judicial systems: Arbitration as well as litigation, e.g., before the procurement tribunals and patent courts.

Most nations have recently impressed an acceleration to the digitalisation process of their health care system, by launching calls for tenders to find private support, e.g., in setting up and managing the IT infrastructure needed to provide telemedicine services, remote monitoring, etc. Since there are still grey areas in the regulation, this process raises certain issues not only in the procurement as such but also as to the regulatory requirements and procedures.

Almost a year and a half after the application of the new European Medical Device Regulation and six months after the application of Regulation (EU) 746/2017 on in vitro diagnostic devices, this workshop aims to discuss the main critical issues that have been encountered and will need to be addressed by operators in the long implementation process. Among other things, we will discuss about the classification of borderline products, the requirements to continue to benefit from the transitional period, the new obligations for operators of the distribution chain and the possible changes of roles between manufactures and distributors, as well as the difficulties and timing of the device recertification process.

From medical cannabis to CBD to full legalization for recreational use - the market for cannabis is diverse and growing rapidly. This seminar will center around the legal implications of medical cannabis – ranging from regulatory requirements (such as the interplay of Narcotic Acts and Medicinal Products Acts) to public procurement challenges as well as the IP protection and legally compliant advertisement of medical cannabis. In addition, the workshop will provide an outlook on the legalization of cannabis for other purposes from a German and EU perspective.
